What role did deregulation, regeneration, inadequate legislation and cuts play in this tragedy? Is Gavin Barwell’s position tenable? • London fire – latest developments. At present there are fears that survivors of the fire will be housed outside the borough, on the edge of London or even further afield. This represents the continuation of a trend whereby local authorities uproot homeless families from their communities and send them to boroughs miles away: 50,000 families had been shipped out of London by 2015. Those asked to relocate out of borough are generally poorer and black and minority ethnic groups. In the case of the Grenfell Tower, were residents rich, their money would allow them to stay in the borough by renting privately or through insurance. But the local authority housed these residents while ignoring their warnings of the dangers of the building. A decision to then shift the residents out of borough would truly reveal what this government feels poorer communities are worth, at a time of utter desperation.feedback

Poppy Noor has most recently been quoted in an article called If you don’t like housing benefit cuts for the vulnerable young, join the march. Poppy Noor said, “A large protest planned for Westminster on Saturday will highlight the human cost of a misguided policy. The first article I ever wrote was about how fundamental housing benefit was to me as a homeless 16-year-old living in a hostel, in response to a proposal to cut housing benefit for 18 to 21-year-olds. Three years later, the policy is about to be rolled out. Talking to the young people planning to protest against it outside Westminster on Saturday, it’s hard to imagine that the ministers imposing the cut have had any interaction with those set to lose the most as a result.”. Poppy Noor has been quoted a grand total of 2 times in 2 articles.
